Holiday Sewing Fun

Over the holidays I've stayed up late with a glass of wine, notepad and pair of scissors with Misses Amy Butler, Patricia Bravo, Tina Givens, and Anna Maria Horner. Late night decisions were made on their future.

The end result was my first ever attempts at 'designer' children's clothes: a few skirts and sun frocks for my two girls and my neice in my favourite colours of these designers' prints.

What do you think? I repurposed a basic drop-waist Butterick girls dress pattern, and came up with a strappy empire-line frock, and a drop-waist skirt. Then I also finally got to use a free blog pattern I've been saving for ages, spotted on Lil Magoolie, but originally from Prudent Baby. I love how they came out!
